Electricity can be generated by way of hydro power at locations that have a sufficiently continuous flow rate and a sufficient height of fall. Flowing water in a brook or a river for instance are insufficient to generate power. It takes a waterfall to garner a sufficient flow rate and difference in height to enable power to be generated.
AQWatt converts your old private water mill to enable it to generate electrical power, whilst preserving the charm and historical prestige of your mill. In doing so, you get to run your own micro-hydroelectric power plant that will ample cater for your own energy requirements. Especially for waterside taverns, inns and restaurants, having your own power generation installation adds to the visual appeal whilst serving as a sustainable added value.
Full new-build projects tend to have lead times ranging from 3 to 5 years, starting out with a feasibility study. The project engineering study requires a due focus of attention to go out to and alignment with authorities such as water management boards, town and country planning, not to mention environmental organisations. The design takes due account of these enabling conditions whereby we work up a total concept that is geared to your specific situation and needs as the project owner, whilst working in joint consultation with contractors and turbine or water wheel suppliers.
AQWatt is not tied to contractors or suppliers of turbines or water wheels. At all times, we go for the most cost-efficient solution by combining in-house efforts, local collaborations and international know-how.
